Example of International Co-Operation in the Frame of the Project Phare (TEMPUS) in Innovations in Teaching of Environmental Hydrogeology in Engineering Education in the Czech Republic.
Grmela, Arnost; Rapantova, Nadia
The international TEMPUS (Trans-European Co-operating and Mobility Scheme for Higher Education between Central/Eastern Europe and European Union) project lasted from 1995-1997. In the framework of TEMPUS, a material and knowledge background was developed in order to ensure the education of the branch Geological Engineering with specialization in Environmental Hydrogeology at VSB-Technical University Ostrava. Several other co-operating European universities (e.g. University of Granada, Ludwig-Maximilians Munich, University of Provance in Marseille, University Aix Marseille III, University Franch-Comte Besancon) and institute TNO Delft were involved in the project. To ensure a high level of quality in teaching material equipment, including new scientific literature, was purchased (laboratory and computer equipment including software) and teachers were systematically retrained at the co-operating universities. The education is based on a credit system newly established at the Faculty of Mining and Geology of the VSB-Technical University Ostrava. This system enables flexible profiling of graduates to meet the present demands of hydrogeological exploration, groundwater protection, and general environmental protection. (Author/YDS)
